Sony will not sell it's (Best) Sensor to Nikon

Nikon sensor

On December 2016 one of our forum members have reported that Nikon is not getting the 42 MP sensor from Sony. Now after three months we got confirmation from Sony itself that they have stopped selling their best sensors to Nikon and others commercially. That’s a really sad news for Nikon and its users.

Nikon manegers

Let’s take an look What Sony representatives said in the interview (some major points)

1. Only Sony Can Use these Sensors

As you know well, our key driver is the image sensor, and we already invested a lot of money for the image sensor development. And the sensor is a custom [design, meaning that] only Sony can use these sensors, and our strength is our in-house technology. So I invested in that and we will keep investing in the in-house technology like image sensors.

2. About Future Fullframe Camera

Now we are focused on three essential factors. One is of course the resolution, and another is the sensitivity, and third is the speed. [For example] 20 frames per second and 30 frames per burst or 100 frames per second, everybody wants to [have] that kind of functionality, but I can’t say yes. Because they don’t know how to use this kind of technology, but if we can show the benefit for that, people [will] enjoy the new technology, I think

3.  APS-C vs Fullframe

Yes. Full-frame is our primary area. But as you said, we don’t ignore the APS-C market, and we can also grow the APS-C market.

That’s why Nikon haven’t announced any Serious fullframe sensor based DSLR or mirrorless from past 1 year. Nikon D750 successor is due for an update for a longtime.  Nikon also reported Extraordinary Financial Loss a while ago.

Fuji GFX 50S at Studio Test Scene Samples Analysis

Today dpreview added Fuji $6k+ MF camera to its Studio comparison tool. After getting this news alert I was really excited to see the test samples of this Medium format camera against some fullframe cameras of today such as Nikon D810, Canon 5DS R and Ultra famous as Sony A7 R2 mirrorless camera.

Fujifilm GFX features BIG 50 megapixel medium format sensor. The camera is using a X Pro-processor for processing images. Whereas the other competitors in the list carry Fullframe sensor, but you should know and note that Sony is the only FF camera which features most advance BSI CMOS sensor in the list.

1.  Fujifilm GFX 50S vs Sony A7R II

Before we begin we must appreciate the presence of Sony A7RII camera among the list. The Sony A7R II camera is one of the most affordable camera among the group and its high image quality allowing him to stand against high-end DSLRs and Medium format camera.

2. Resolution and High ISO

High-ISO-test

The 50 MP Resolution and the details captures by Medium Format sensor is dominating the entire test results. However the High ISO results look bit better than Nikon D810 and Sony A7R II which was unexpected, we were expecting better results from Fujifilm.

3. Moire Test

Fuji GFX50s

We are really disappointed after looking at the Moire test results of Fuji GFX 50S medium format camera. Whereas the full frame sensor based Nikon D810 camera showing well controlled images without any Moire pattern.
